Green Queen

So ehm, it’s been a while.. Busy busy busy, annoying! BUT as promised on twitter I just needed to ‘make’ time for a new mani and here it is! I chose two colors that I love in combination; dark blue and bright green. The lime hex are from Dollar Nail Art and the beautiful 1-coat blue is the new Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans! from Catrice. I bought this together with the green Run Forest Run! (quite funny cause I STILL say/shout that whenever I see someone running lol ^^) and the greyish taupy Absolutely Chinchilly!. Three musthaves in my opinion.

Do you see the tiny lightblue flakies on the closeup pic? It’s so pretty. You won’t see it from a distance obviously but if you occassionally stick your finger nearly in your eye to look at a pretty polish you have on, like me, then it’s worth it ;) Time to enjoy the sight of the falling snow outside with a cup of hot tea now. Only downside of snowy weather outside is the aweful lighting for making pics, aw well, can’t have it all! Enjoy the weekend!

EDIT: Cause of all the sweet comments on the ring I’m going to tell you a secret. YOU CAN GET IT TOO! It’s right under your nose, … at Ebay :-D It’s cheap, the shipping is cheap and it got delivered in 3 weeks, awesome. They have great costumerservice also. Note: this is not silver, so be careful with adjusting the size. There are different sizes available, I’m wearing size 6 and it’s quite big lol! CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK <3

Gold Out Forever! (dollar nail art review)

Yesterday my Dollar Nail Art order arrived and I finally got to work with some of the great stuff they sell there. I’m aiming at the Laser Lace. Laser Lace is a luminous weave of delicate fibers woven so closely together it can could be defined as lace. It’s available in 10 vibrant colors and I chose to buy the Sky Blue, Silver and Gold. I also got some green and pearl holographic glitter (the green I used on this mani) and loads of dots, hex and studs. Prepare to see more of this order soon :)

The Laser Lace wasn’t as easy to work with as it looked beforehand. The lace is very fragile and needs to be handled very very careful or you will make it fall apart. The glitter was just aweful. It has gotten everywhere where it wasn’t supposed to be. It gets delivered in a very small and tightly screwed jar which made me lose a quarter of glitter to just trying to open it. A little note: open the jars etc before you polish your nails. The striping tape is amazing and I can’t wait to use more of this, I got them in silver, gold and black and all in 2 different sizes. The one I used here is the biggest size.

Dollar Nail Art (.com) is a nice and trustworthy webshop with a lot of different nailart supplies. The items you see are $1 each but they also sell some fixed sets of products which differ in price. The shipping costs are rather high in my opinion, the supplies hardly weight anything and still I had to pay $10 to The Netherlands. Please beware that it’s a *requirement* to order for the minimum amount of $25 (shipping does not count) and you can only pay by credit card or paypal. Best thing would be to combine an order with a friend! They ship worldwide.

I’m off to do some work for school now, take care and thnx for looking!

Pulse

Rather late than never right? This is my shout out to the world for raising breastcancer awareness. I think we all have someone in our family or close to us that has suffered or is suffering from breastcancer. Actually, worldwide breast cancer comprises 10.4% of all cancer incidence among women, making it the most common type of non-skin cancer in women and the fifth most common cause of cancer death. In 2004, breast cancer caused 519,000 deaths worldwide.. (source: wikipedia)

I chose to make a pro-life mani with this pink blingy pulse design! Drawing the lines was a pita since I still don’t have proper nailart pencils. Does anyone have a recommendation for me perhaps? Turns out Ebay isn’t always your best friend, hihi. The ring was from the same store as the ring I showed before, because this is sterling silver it was 14,95 EUR. Still cheap right?! <3

Thnx so much for stopping by!

Pink Overkill

AAAH!!! I’m wearing bright pink! MY EYES! Ugh, this might be fun for an hour but hell no I won’t have this mani for a whole day, I would die. This is so not me lol! But I do think it’s cute, … I think. At least it’s not as depressing as the weather here at the moment. The colors are Catrice’s Hot or Not? (dark) and Sweets for my Sweets (light). All the stickers are from different nailart sheets from Essence.

The next mani will be showing some new rings again, some of you on Twitter might already have seen them, I’m such a sucker for cheapies lately. I also have some nailart thingies incoming from dollarnailart.com. Very curious to the quality to be honest. Does anyone reading this have experience with them?

Time for some breakfast (at 13:39..) and some studying! Enjoy your weekend

Halloween nails pt 2: Dark butterflies

Hi!

I couldn’t resist making the second mani in my Halloween series already. Did I mention how much I love this theme? No? I LOVE IT! AAAAAH! This design is black purple and it has butterflies It’s also very easy to create!

I used Catrice Back to Black as black base. This black is amazingly opaque but I still used two coats to be sure. On top I put some thin fimo flowers from Ebay. The white cross is from BM imageplate number 13. This plate also has bats, a spider, a witch and a spiderweb which I used in my Halloween nails pt 1. The rhinestones are from Ebay as well.

Thnx for stopping by and take care, dark ones!

Pink curtains

Yayyyy, I’ve found the time to make a mani for tomorrow :oops:

Hate this busy life, combined with stress from work, oh and the absolutely shitty weather here in The Netherlands. It’s just aweful. Do you know the feeling of dressing nicely, make-up ready and hair done..you step outside..it rains..and then half an hour later you arrive at work looking like #$%&*. AAARGH!

Today I bought a cute pink vest since it’s actually cold here. Pink is usually not my color but since I got pink clothing now anyway, I figured I might as well do a pink mani! I decided to use the m62 curtain-design with Konad Special polish in Psyche Pink. I started with Catrice’s French Manicure polish in 120 French rose to hide stains and my yellow’ish tips

I added a few nailstickers from the new 05 Sweet Romance piece from Essence. Annnnddddd, that’s about it! Seche topcoat and we are ready to go :-) Don’t you just love simple mani’s every now and then?


Mesmerizing Gold

First of all a big thank you for all the support and help with transferring to my new website, I really REALLY appreciate it  <3 I was actually at a point where I wanted to just go back to Blogger and remove the word WordPress from my vocabulary but your comments and help made me stay here. THANK YOU!!

The manicure for today is Catrice Bronzed Brown (told you that I was gonna wear it a lot ;-)  with the amazing stampingcolor 2030 from China Glaze Khrome.

The first word that came to mind was Mesmerizing so figured it might as well be the title of this post. At work I got a lot of positive feedback *they might have been hypnotized by looking at it..hmmmm..k back to earth now*

I love the color combination. I recently bought this Bronzed Brown together with the other new Carame color of Catrice: Spiced Bronze. I wonder how these two would look together! Has anyone tried this combination yet?
